This place is lovely and would have received an 'Excellent' had it not been for the location. The apartments are clean, spacious and attractive. The courtyard is beautiful as well as the rooftop terrace. The terrace is good as a getaway after a long day of walking. No view though... The bathroom was clean, but the shower controls were either not working or not very easy to understand. Monica, the manager, was very helpful and nice.
The only downside is the location. It is out of the downtown area which I thought would be a plus, but the villa is located in an area that is a bit shady. A tram, which leaves you off at the train station (not a great area to be dropped off) is needed to access the downtown area. The tram turned out to be an inconvenience. As I walked around downtown Florence, I began to think that it would have been better to stay near all of the museums. Restaurants and shopping was located in the downtown area. All of the great experiences of being near the locals was in the downtown area. There was not much of anything near the villa. They have great security with two electronically locked gates, but it makes you wonder why.
Overall, it was a great place to stay, but after experiencing Florence, I would have chosen a location near the attractions of the city.
